Daredevil is the third show in three years to take home the coveted title of “Killing Time Community Best Show on TV”. 2013 was Game of Thrones, 2014 was The Walking Dead and now 2015 belongs to Daredevil. The Man Without Fear lead post to post, dominating most of the early voting, but barely holding off a late surge from Game of Thrones after the HBO drama smashed the Emmy record for most wins by a show. Daredevil was my pick as well, and I think the best thing the MCU has produced to-date, which given the bar they’ve set, is truly high praise.
Daredevil will be back for season 2 in April 2016. We’ll see The Punisher and Elektra join the mix and Scott Glenn will return as Matt’s mentor, Stick. The series received ONE Emmy nomination (for Sound Effects Editing), which is, again, why I do not watch the Emmys. Had I all the power in the universe, and in this universe I do, these would have been my winners in the major categories:
Best Drama: Daredevil, Netfilx
Best Comedy: Parks & Recreation, NBC
Best Actor, Drama: Jon Hamm, Mad Men, AMC
Best Actress, Drama: Robin Wright, House of Cards, Netflix
Best Actor, Comedy: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory, CBS
Best Actress, Comedy: Amy Poehler, Parks & Recreation, NBC
Best Supporting Actor, Drama: Vincent D’Onofrio, Daredevil
Best Supporting Actress, Drama: Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones
Best Supporting Actor, Comedy: Nick Offerman, Parks & Recreation
Best Supporting Actress, Comedy: Aubrey Plaza, Parks & Recreation
Congratulations to DD, and we’ll be back with a Bond-related poll in a few days as we get ready for SPECTRE!
